Islam and Christianity

ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY This book is written in the nature of a “key” for those Muslim brothers of ours who have just a smattering of knowledge on how the Islamic religion has developed, and it has been written for those non-Muslims willing to know the fundamentals of Islam. Islam, the most up-to-date and the most immaculate of the world’s existing religions, is based upon very humane and very logical principles. Without going into details, this book touches upon the fundamentals of Islam and makes a comparison of Islam with other religions. It answers criticisms raised against Islam by its adversaries and explains as compendiously as possible the qualifications essential for being a good Muslim. For those who would like to read valuable books on Islam written by Islamic scholars (rahimahumullâhu ta’âlâ) after learning the facts contained in this book, we advise that they read books published in different languages by the Hakîkat Kitabevi (Bookstore) in Istanbul. The names of these books are appended to our books. Read this book slowly and with reflection! Encourage others to read it, too! An ignorant person cannot be a good Muslim. Indeed, it is impossible for a person not to attach all his heart to Islam after learning its fundamentals. After reading this book, you will also realize what a lofty, sacred, logical, and perfect religion Islam is, and you will attach all your heart and soul to it in order to attain salvation and repose in this world and in the hereafter. Islam that abrogated celestial religions of Judaism and Christianity along with their validity is explained first. That Qur’an-ı Karîm is word of Allah; miracles of Muhammad ׳alayhissalâm, his virtues, moral practices and habits; how to be a true Muslim; a comparison of Islam and Christianity; that Muslims are scientifically powerful; are explained next.

authenticities, for

authenticities, for instance by stigmatizing one passage as obsolete, another as concerning Jewry, and another as Mosaic or non-Christian. You cannot believe in one part and reject another. You have to believe in it as a whole. If this passage from the Biblical book Deuteronomy has nothing to do with Christianity, your ecumenical councils should have excised it from the Holy Bible or at least announced all over the world that it was a superstition inserted into the Bible afterwards. Since they did not do so, you should be believing in this passage as a commandment of Allah. Accordingly, you have to acknowledge that Christianity is an extremely savage, cruel, ruthless and death-dealing religion.” The Christian priest was consternated. Because he had never read the Holy Bible completely, and had not even taken a look at the Old Testament and therefore it was the first time that he had ever seen it, he was agape with astonishment. Finally, he said to us, “You have embarrassed not only me but the entire Christendom. I am not a theologian, and I must confess that I am not very pious. I thought the Holy Bible contained only compassion, mercy and forgiveness. This terrible passage of savagery has had a disastrous effect on me. I am ashamed also that I am a priest. When I go back home, I shall tell some learned theologians about this. I shall apply to the authorities for the excision of this passage from the Holy Bible. This passage is certainly a superstition. For Allah would not give such a horrendous command. This passage must be a Jewish fabrication.” We consoled him. We gave him one of our publications in English, namely Islam and Christianity. We said, “If you read this book you will see that the Holy Bible contains many other errors. In fact, these errors are about twenty thousand according to a report!” The previous section, ‘The Qur’ân al-kerîm and Today’s Copies of the Torah and the Bible’, contains a comparison of the Bible and the Qur’ân al-kerîm. Please review that section! The Holy Bible, which Christians believe in as a heavenly book revealed by Allâhu ta’âlâ, contains a high number of passages commanding cruelty and savagery. We will quote an insignificant number of them only as a lesson to the so-called innocent and compassionate Christians who call Muslims barbarians and Islam a religion of barbars. The twenty-third and twenty-fourth verses of the twenty-third chapter of Exodus read as follows: “For mine angel shall go – 218 –

efore thee, and bring thee in unto the Am’or-ites, and the Hittites, and the Per’iz-zites, and the Canaanites, ...: and I will cut them off.” “... but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.” (Ex: 23-23, 24) In the beginning of the thirty-first chapter of Numbers “the LORD” commands Moses to “Avenge the children of Israel of the Mid’i-an-ites: ...” (Num: 31-2) And the seventh and later verses read as follows: “And they warred against the Mid’i-anites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.” (ibid: 7) “And the children of Israel took all the women of Mid’i-an captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.” “And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.” (ibid: 9, 10) It is written in the later verses that Mûsâ ‘alaihis-salâm’ was angry with his officers because they had left the women alive, and that he commanded the slaughter of the male children of all the women. (ibid: 14, 15, 16, 17) A later verse, on the other hand, (verse 35) states that the number of girls unkilled was thirty-two thousand. Just imagine the number of the people slaughtered! The initial verses of the seventh chapter of Deuteronomy read as follows: “When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Gir’ga-shites, ... and the Am’or-ites, and the Canaanites, and the Per’iz-zites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;” “And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:” (Deut: 7-1, 2) The twenty-seventh verse of the thirty-second chapter of Exodus reads as follows: “And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughhout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.” (Ex: 32-27) It is written in the eighth and later verses of the twenty-seventh chapter of I Samuel that Dâwûd (David) ‘alaihis-salâm’ and his soldiers “invaded the Gesh’u-rites, and the Gez’rites, and the Am’a-lek-ites” and “left neither man nor woman alive.” (I Sam: 27-8, 9) – 219 –
